DuPont to Acquire Danisco for $6.3 Billion
Date:1/9/2011

has two well-positioned global businesses that strongly complement our current biotechnology capabilities, R&D pipeline, and specialty food ingredients, a combination that offers attractive long-term financial returns.  This also would create new opportunities across other parts of the DuPont portfolio, including traditional materials science offerings," said Kullman.  

Danisco is a leading technology-driven organization, with outstanding research and application development capabilities.  The company has specialty food ingredients, including enablers, cultures and sweeteners, that generate about 65 percent of total sales; and Genencor, its enzymes division, represents 35 percent of total sales.  Danisco and DuPont are already joint venture partners in the development of cellulosic ethanol technology.  Danisco has nearly 7,000 employees globally with operations in 23 countries.

The acquisition is to be effected through a public tender offer by a subsidiary of DuPont for all of Danisco's outstanding shares at a price of DKK 665 in cash per share.  Danisco has stated its intention to recommend the offer to its shareholders subject to and upon publication of the Offer Document relating to the tender offer following review by the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.  The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including certain regulatory approvals and the tender of more than 90 percent of the Danisco shares in the tender offer.  DuPont has the right to waive such tender offer conditions and accept a lesser number of shares in certain cases.  

Investors' Webcast Monday

DuPont will host a webcast and slide presentation for shareholders, investors and the media at 9:00 a.m. (EST) Monday, Jan. 10, accessible through the DuPont Investor Center at www.dupont.com.
